differently, and president obama has taken it down to 10,000 feet, be but it is flying parallel to the earth. >> well, part of what i am wondering is that we started the day by saying that this president is going to leave a legacy of having shifted the demographics of the military, and he is going to look culturally and demographically quite differently, but also, will he leave behind a strategic way of for good or better or leaner or smaller and a different warfare? >> yes, he is. it is not his own doing, but it is the trajectory of the foreign national security and we are gining to see the end of land mass wars as we drawdown in iraq and afghanistan, and for the peace and justice community and those who are citizens, we have to think of engaging with the new warfare which is going to involve aerial drones and special ops, and what that means at a time when there is great support in this country and a need to cut an extraordinarily bloated defense budget which is higher than the height of the cold war if we are going to fulfill the promise of this nation, you have to believe that president
, mr. president, this was your idea. why did you want to do this together, a joint interview? >> obama: well, the main thing is, i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had. it has been a great collaboration over the last four years. i'm going to miss her. i wish she was sticking around. but she has logged in so many miles, i can't begrudge her wanting to take it easy for a little bit. but i want the country to appreciate just what an extraordinary role she's played during the course of my administration, and a lot of the successes we've had internationally have been because of her hard work. >> kroft: there's no political tea leaves to be read here? >> clinton: we don't have any tea. we've got some water here is the best i can tell. but, you know, this has been just the most extraordinary honor. and, yes, i mean, a few years ago it would have seen seen as improbable, because we had that very long, hard primary campaign. but, you know, i've gone around the world on behalf of the presid
